    Title: Movement in Language Subtitle: Interactions and Architectures Publication Year: 2001 Publisher: Oxford University Press, Book URL: Author: Norvin Richards

    Hardback: ISBN: 0198241178, Pages: 344, Price: $111.00 Paperback: ISBN: 0199246513, Pages: 344, Price: $35.00 Abstract: This is the most comprehensive, integrated explanation ever published of the properties of question formations and their variations across languages. Movement in Language develops a new set of arguments for the controversial claim that syntax should be understood derivationally; that is, that the best model of language is one in which sentences are constructed in a series of operations that precede or follow each other in time. The arguments are exemplified through reference to a number of languages, including Bulgarian, Japanese, English, Chinese, and Serbo-Croatian. Lingfield(s): Morphology

    Written In: English (Language Code: English)
